Thread: Wookiee Worries

    Wookiee Worries

    I've just got ROTS 42 (Neimoidian Warrior) and 43 (Wookiee Warrior) - two great looking figures... the latter is a little cartoony, but hey, you can't have too many wookiees. My excitement soon turned to disappointment though, when I opened the wookiee, and his arm fell off at the elbow. It fits back easy enough, but it doesn't really click into place, and drops off again at the slightest twist.

    Has anyone else opened up one of these guys? I want to know if I should get another one, or if they all suffer the same design fault.

    My Wookie doesent do this, but Plo Koon does and when I opened polis Massan and tried to remove the rubber band on his wrist it catapulted his hand across the room and it took 30 minutes to find it again!
    Its the cruddy cheap plastic they use these days

    Simple business guys, Less costs in makin the product, more profit you will make. Hasbro is a great example of this :P

    My tan wookie did the same thing but my brown wookies didn't. They look pretty good together with the other wookies though, especially if you mix & match weapons.

    Cheers for the info guys. Re Bosskman's tan and brown wookiees... are these variants of #43? Mine's a tan one.

    Anyway, my ATTE Gunner's right arm likes to come of a alot. Kind of fun battle damage, though. Also it's fun to remove a SA or Quick-Draw Clone's hand and then pose him where he's looking at his stub. It's fun-nay...

    Yes, there is a tan version and a brown version for the #43 Wookie Warrior.

    I am getting rid of my entire carded/boxed collection. I have almost every variation from POTF2. If there is anything you need, just let me know.

    Funny, my AT-TE Gunner's left arm comes out very easily.

    As for the Wookiee Warrior, I have a tan and a brown one, neither has any joint problems at all.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
